Oral Surgery San Francisco is a state-of-the-art oral and maxillofacial surgery in San Francisco undertaking a range of different procedures. One of these is wisdom teeth removal, and we are frequently asked about wisdom teeth removal cost, which is fair enough.
However, what many people fail to consider when thinking about wisdom teeth removal cost is the cost of NOT having wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth are your third molars and they are the last to erupt in the mouth, typically in your mid to late teens, but can be even later. Some people are lucky, and they erupt perfectly normally and healthily, in which case they do not need to be removed.
However, it is a fact that in the case of most people in San Francisco, the wisdom teeth do not have enough room in the mouth to erupt normally, or as they should, and so they may grow at an angle or can cause all sorts of other problems. Not the least of these is that they can push the adjacent teeth out of alignment as they seek to find a way to erupt. They may only partially erupt from the gum or they can even become trapped under the gum and bone.
In turn this can lead to pain, gum infection, swelling, bleeding gums, bad breath as a result of infection, difficulty opening the mouth, and an unpleasant taste in the mouth. If the wisdom teeth become impacted, the worst that can happen is that tumors or cysts form around them, which in turn leads to destruction of the jawbone and healthy teeth.
